' 'l- - llmmullmmmm HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 13, 2009 ISH at Dor Shalom: where to go next in the Jewish continuum Lawrence Kolin is turning 40 in March and his next stop is Dor Shalom. Kolin was a founding board member of Or Hadash. which has thrived over the past eight years, and now serves as "Head ISH" in the new "40ish" group. He wants those approaching 40 to join Dor Shalom to stay involved in the commu- nity and to take advantage of social, cultural, travel and educational events. Kolin has even recently created a FaceBook group Dor Shalom Orlando that has more than 50 members. He says, "Dor Shalom is an outreach group for both couples and singles approach- ing age 40 and up, for people to reconnect with old friends and make new ones with fellow Jews in their cohort." Dor Shalom is a program of the Jewish Federation Lawrence Kolin of Greater Orlando. Kolin sees this "as the logical progression of adult Jewish life Hiilel to Or Hadash to Dor Shalom and hopefully, 39ers!" He says, "I encourage other families and couples and singles to join this in- teresting and diverse group." Kolin, an Orlando attorney, was raised in a tradition of community service and is a product of the Jewish Fed- eration of Greater Orlando. having grown up in Central Florida. He and his wife.

He served for five years on the executive board of the Jewish Pavilion, and is also a vice president of the board of directors of the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Central Florida and chair of its Future Vision Committee.

First person by Leila Broumand and Matthew Rosenthal On a Monday at 7 a.m., late last fall, our bus. "the sixth grade's bus," left the Hebrew Day School and had to face the boredom that came with a four-hour bus ride. But the rewards of the ride were amazing: We got to go to Savannah, Ga. When we arrived in Savan- nah, we put our bags in the rustic cabin and went straight to lunch in the nearby din- ing hall. After the meal, we unpacked, and Walked across the road to see a reptile show. Mrs. Miller, the speaker, got so scared when a staff member sneaked up behind her and said that his Nikon camera string was a snake. That is when we knew Mrs. Miller was afraid of snakes. Another thing happened: a mouse! Immediately fol- lowing that, we went to the archaeology hut and dug for Native American artifacts. One of the kids even found a musket ball. We had din- ner, and drove to downtown Savannah for a colonial ghost tour on a horse-drawn carriage. There were some ghost stories, but none of them were really very scary. When the tour was over, we ran straight to the candy store and splurged on candy, fudge, and gum. That "night on the town" wrapped up a tiring day of traveling. The next morning, after breakfast, we boarded the bus again to go to the Savannah History Museum. We saw an informative video about the history of Savannah and then saw the exhibits, one of which even had a real train engine. We went on a trolley tour after and walked to the his- At Tybee Island, we climbed on the jetties and found sea life in the freezing cold water. Brrrr! which was General William T. Sherman's headquarters, and Congregation Mickve Israel, which is the oldest synagogue in the Southeast. Then, we went to have lunch at the Pirates' House, which gave the idea for Robert Louis Stevenson, a famous author, to create the amazing book. "Treasure Island." We traveled to Tybee Island, after that wonderful lunch buffet. There, our grade climbed on the jet- ties and found sea life in the freezing cold water. You won't believe what we did after that. We took our shoes off and walked in the water! An hour later, we were get- ting ready for the "50s Night" dinner and ballroom dancing. The dinner was good, except for the fact that the boys had to be servants to the girls. Then, we had ballroom danc- ing, where we got in groups with everybody in the other,, group. Teachers. boys, and girls; everybody danced with each other. The next day, we went to the old colonial school and saw a slideshow of all the fun things that we did. We had our final meal. and boarded the bus for a final time to head back to Orlando. We arrived at 6:30 p.m., to the smiling faces of the sixth grade moms and dads. This trip was amazing. We really bonded as a grade. Leila Broumand and Mat- thew Rosenthal are sixth grade students at HDS Sel- znick Middle School. They recently honed their writing skills in the HDS Journalism Club. HDS Selznick Middle School is the upper division of the Hebrew Day School.

I always saw middle school students walk- ing to different classes in the hails. I always wanted to be in a middle school classroom with other middle school students. As a fifth grader I finally had a chance to check out a sixth grade class. It was through a system called "A Day in the Life of an HDS Middle School Student." According to Ms. Cohen, middle school direc- tor, this system started about four years ago. She also said that this system was made to let the fifth grade students see what it was like to be in middle school. While I was there I was able to see what type of classes there were. Also, I was able to meet most of the teachers that would be teaching me in the next few years--see what kind of specials, such as P.E., art, and music the sixth grade had. I was able to see all of these things because my buddy, Janna Gluck, made me eel welcome. Not only did I have a chance to visit the middle school, I had the chance to make a really good friend in the process. Now that I am in the middle school I am looking forward to being a buddy to one of the fifth graders who will be attending our middle school. I hope to make the upcoming middleschoolers feel welcome and enjoy the experience of this wonderful program, as I did. Zipporah Hruby is in the sixth grade at HDS Selznick Middle School.
